Abstract

The past few decades in legal and literary studies we have challenged the boundaries raised by the different concepts of law and literature espoused by a great variety of theorists. Law's traditionally assumed disciplinary autonomy has been challenged by those who have crossed the disciplinary threshold. They have done so in order to pursue interdisciplinary methods of research. On one hand, this volume focuses on the sublime and proposes that the ethical aspect involved in the legal sublime is to contain the arrogance of the law. The concept of the sublime has moved out of the strictly philosophical and literary fields and crossed the borders between disciplines, finding an application also in the juridical field. But on the other hand the volume draws attention to the "and" of interdisciplinary literary-legal studies. Law's disciplinary autonomy has been challenged by those who wish to pursue interdisciplinary methods of research. The volume offers new daring comparisons between philosophical fields and between apparently distant historical periods.
